BHUBANESWAR: Volunteers participation in ensuring traffic regulation in the Capital City will begin from April 17.
Two NGOs have been roped in for mobilising volunteers for the purpose. Individuals willing to be a part of the initiative can approach the traffic wing of Commissionerate of Police for registering themselves.
Currently there are 57 road intersections manned by traffic police under Bhubaneswar Urban Police District (UPD). Once the volunteers are fully trained and start regulating traffic more than a dozen such junctions can be brought under vigil, Commissioner Dr RP Sharma said.
Both, men and women, between 18 and 45 years are eligible for entry into the one of its kind force in the State.
The eligible candidates will be screened on April 15 and 16 after which they will be officially enrolled.
This will be an honorary job for which there will be no remuneration. However, the CP will provide uniform, caps and radium jackets to the candidates ones they are selected.
